Entering through the gates of Lilly’s Valley Resort was promising. And it turned out to be as promising as we had wished. The many houses, creating a small village, were built in 1982, but they rather looked as they were built in 1882, with a beautiful garden on a slope. Breakfast, Indian style, is served under a roof out in...

Lilys valley is a quirky place. Nice old style accomodation and reasonably equipped rooms. The issues are more around facilities in the room and the resort in general. Lack of a covered dining area is a bid drawback during winters. For short stays with family this is a good place and worth a second look for your plans.

Good hotel with good service. Had a good stay with my family. Foods are all less price and good quality. Only the defect we have to order the dinner at earliest. First they provide a common camp fire without service charge.

We had a short family outing to Kodaikanal and chose this place as it claimed to be the first resort in Kodaikanal. It sounded interesting enough and the online reviews looked fine. We wanted to choose the fireplace room, and we thought we had taken that one but perhaps our mistake that we hadn't taken that one while making booking....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lilly’s Valley is a uniquely beautiful resort set amid terraced gardens on three acres of wooded land, ringed by towering eucalyptus trees. Its 21 traditional stone cottages are constructed in the colonial British style, with handcrafted woodwork details throughout. It is the rare resort with an eco-focus and no concrete structures: even the furniture is lovingly made by hand by talented craftsmen! Built in 1982, Lilly’s Valley was the first resort in Kodaikanal. Our stone-and-wood cottages, both free-standing and attached, can accommodate couples, small and large family groups, students, and corporate groups. We are located in a quiet suburban neighborhood exactly 2 km from the center of town and the lake. With a short taxi ride or 15-minute walk, you’ll be in the heart of shopping, boating, horse-riding, roller-skating and other tourist attractions. Our style is low-key and customized to you: you can order simple, tasty Western and South Indian dishes from the kitchen, and hold gatherings in the garden gazebo with your own music and programs. We’ll even arrange a cozy night bonfire! We have special rates for long-term stays of one week or more, up to a 50% discount. Discounts are also available for weekdays. Many repeat customers, both Indian and foreign, have been coming here for decades, drawn back by the beauty, peacefulness, and cozy cottages. One Italian child born in one of our cottages returned 25 years later with her husband to stay in the same cottage! ... more   less
